Huntley Creek Floodplain Mapping Open House

september-9

I am happy to announce that the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority has just completed draft floodplain mapping along Huntley Creek in the City of Ottawa located in West Carleton. The project has identified flood prone areas for the 1:100 year flood event.

With funding and in cooperation with the City of Ottawa, the MVCA has undertaken a five year program of producing flood risk maps throughout the City. Identifying lands that are vulnerable to flooding is an important responsibility for Ontario’s Conservation Authorities.

An Open House will be held Wednesday, September 28th from 6:00-9:00 PM for any residents who may have questions or inquiries at the Kanata Recreation Complex Hall “D” (100 Charlie Rogers Place).

I encourage interested residents to attend the open house and/or provide comments on the draft mapping completed for Huntley Creek, the draft mapping is available here.
